Second visit this week and delighted with the food, friendly service and atmosphere. Live Piano music in the background was very enjoyable and modern music selection was refreshing. Happy to recommend.

A big thanks to Seamus and the brilliant staff of the Fiddlers. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the Christmas Party Night on Friday last - superb food, a welcoming atmosphere and truly a great nights entertainment. A special mention must go to David & Kate in particular who were wonderfully attentive to us the whole evening! Everyone in the Jazzercise... More

We had our Christmas party here on 20th December it was a fantastic night from start to finish, the food was delicious and very well presented and the staff were very warm and friendly. Our staff had a great night and danced away to the band that was provided for the nights entertainment. We would definately recommend the Fiddlers Elbow... More

We go here occasionally for weekday lunch and it is always lovely. I am coeliac and there is always a choice. Very busy place so the staff will carry the tray to the table. The complimentary tea or coffee and chocolate biscuit to finish off is very welcome

I booked a table for 4 people on Sunday evening at 7pm. We arrived on time and were quickly shown to our table. They had a set evening menu for €27.00 per head with a supplement of €5.00 for steak. There was a good choice of starters, mains and desserts but I felt as there was no vegetables or mash... More

After having a hectic week moving into the area, we decided to go for food here on a Thursday evening to celebrate! Going on all the fantastic reviews, we will definitely go back as we love our dining but I am afraid on our visit, the food was very poor. It was such a shame as the setting was lovely... More

Excellent food (5 stars) and atmospheric. Reasonably good value (especially the evening two course set menu). The staff were friendly but a little too busy to be able to give 5 star service. Go for the exquisite food.

We dine in the Fiddlers Carrickmacross regularly. We fine the food excellent and the staff very courteous and friendly. They go out of their way to make you welcome. We attended a funeral lunch recently and the meal was first class-delicious. We'd recommend the Fiddlers highly for a meal mid-day or evening. Tess and Brian.uni
